Soup joumou, 'pumpkin soup' is made of the bright yellow ingredients of squash, pumpkin, vegetables, and meat. Before Haiti's independence , the soup joumou was off-limits to Black slaves. Once the Haitian people gained emancipatioon, the soup was consumed on the first day of January in 1804. Since then, this meal accompanies the celebration of the day of independence. Raquel Stallworth's painting, Soup Joumou draws from the vibrant colors of the soup. The warm shades of yellow orange and brown seamlessly overlap each other in her oil painting
